On October 23, CHI Saint Joseph Health announced a new affiliation with a national partner to better serve cancer patients in the Lexington area.
This new affiliation will enhance the care provided through the two CHI Saint Joseph Health – Cancer Care Centers in Lexington. Benefits include streamlined referral process and consultation on treatment options with Cleveland Clinic physicians.
“Our cancer care centers have a long history of providing high quality care for patients and we are pleased to enhance that care even further,” said Tassin. “This affiliation will give patients in central Kentucky access to physicians at Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center, which is ranked in the top 10 hospitals for cancer care nationally by US News & World Report.”
CHI Saint Joseph Health – Cancer Care Centers provide a variety of support services, including a social worker at both Lexington locations who are involved with the patient throughout their journey. The centers will soon add referral coordinators who can walk patients through referrals and assist with scheduling to make it easier to access vital patient care.
CHI Saint Joseph Health operates two cancer care centers in Lexington on Bob-O-Link Drive and Blazer Parkway.
